Sayur Lodeh with Ketupat (Lontong)

Sayur Lodeh with lontong or ketupat is one of our family's favourite one-dish-meal.
It is so called simple if you can prepare the chilli paste one day ahead.
My husband loves vegetables. He enjoys this meal so much.
Normally for making my cooking easier, i will just use Hai's lontong paste and add in some fresh ingredients like lemongrass, dried shrimps, turmeric and galangal to the paste.
It turns out good too.
But today i am keen to have a try on 3 hungry tummies nanny's recipe.
It is cool! Delicious!
Unfortunately i dont have long beans and eggplants.
But overall it is really good, especially the gravy.
Just can't stop until finished everything in the bowl.
mmm.......... Satisfied.......! Thanks for sharing this beautiful recipe.
